    I have been working at Huntswood

    Pros

    Working with great people who care about what they do. The opportunity to grow if you show you have the passion, ability and motivation. An ethical business that puts its clients and customers first - believing its about long term relationships not short term deals.

    Cons

    Its a place for self starters - people who need lots of structure and process will find it difficult. Owner managed business isn't to everyone's liking.

    I worked at Huntswood full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I honestly don't think there is any pros.

    Cons

    The hiring of management is a mystery to most, but generally as long as they have no management experience and they are happy to say 'Yes', no matter how ethically wrong the matter is and how badly it impacts their team members,, then they are promoted to manage teams..... well if you can call it managing?
    Impossible to understand why any reputable organisation would choose to allow Huntswood to manage any project, without losing credibility and reputation.
    The attrition rate is ridiculously high, each day they are advertising for more and more case handlers, due to more people, who refuse to be treated so appallingly.
    If you are prepared to work many more hours than your contract, and still don't get paid for a full week.... If you enjoy being managed by unprofessional, 'yes' people, then great.... your type of company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a big wide world outside of Huntswood.... doubt the style of 'Yes' management will fit in most reputable, professional organisations. The flippant attitude to contractors and the continuous threat to sack individuals, with no come back will be your hardest lessen to be learnt. It doesn't work like that everywhere.... it doesn't work like that in most organisations.
    Question for Craig Coffield - 'what type of monster have you created' ?

    I have been working at Huntswood as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was 10 miles from my home

    Cons

    The management of this company have egos the size of a small galaxy. They despise contractors whilst at the same time requiring them to fulfill their requirements. Like some kind of putrid symbiosis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new career. Try estate agency or used car selling. Something decent and honest

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
